Miss Rizos: Conversation with Carolina Contreras

Miss Rizos: Conversation with Carolina Contreras

Radio Ambulante presents a conversation with Carolina Contreras, founder of MissRizos.com, a blog where she documents her personal journey from chemically straightened hair to her natural curly hair. Miss Rizos has gained thousands of followers and Carolina has become the driving force behind an international movement. We talk about hair, but more than anything we talk the issues of about class, racism and identity that are associated with curly or “afro” hair in Latin America.

Extra: To watch a video from Conexión Rizada, an event organized by Miss Rizos and Diosas al Natural in Puerto Rico, visit our blog.
